Valheim 4K Texture Pack-5

Valheim developers issue official statement about paid mods

Iron Gate, the developers behind the exploration and survival game, Valheim, have issued an official statement about paid mods. As we can see, the developers are against paid mods, and want to see all mod authors making their mods available for free to everyone.

Although Iron Gate will not block any paid mods, it believes that all mods should be free to everyone. Then, if people want to support mod authors, they can go ahead and voluntarily donate money to them.

Speaking of Valheim, here are some free mods that you can download for it. This mod adds The Witcher 3’s Geralt, Ciri, Triss & Yennefer to the game. Then, we have this mod that adds Experience & Level Up RPG System. Moreover, there are mods that overhaul magic, reduce grinding, remove boss healing and allow you to auto-pick items. There are also mods that add bears, lockable doors, airships, and runestones. Let’s also not forget this mod that adds a Hardcore Server Mode. And lastly, there is a 4K Texture Pack that you can download from here.

Below you can find Iron Gate’s full statement.

“We feel that charging money for a mod is against the creative and open spirit of modding itself, and therefore we urge all mod authors to make their mods freely available to all who want to play them. This should include the whole mod, and not just have part of the mod available for free while another part of it costs money. If you want to show your appreciation for a mod author you can of course still support them with a voluntary donation, but we do not want payment to be a requirement to access a mod.

Additionally, we would also greatly appreciate it if mods made it clear that they are unofficial mods, both in game and on any website where the mod is available. Sometimes joining a modded dedicated server will automatically trigger a download of a mod, and we simply want to avoid confusion for players so that they can know whether or not they are playing a modded game. Valheim already has a feature for this, where you can simply have your mod trigger a popup in game, which will inform the player that their game is running with a mod.”
